Abstract

In mass customization, the capability Robust Process Design defined
as the ability to reuse or recombine existing organizational and value-chain resources
is essential to deliver a high variety cost effectively. We argue that
there is a need for methods which can assess a company’s process robustness
and their capability to develop it. Through literature study and analysis of
robust process design characteristics a number of metrics are described which
can be used for assessment. The metrics are evaluated and analyzed to be
applied as KPI’s to help MC companies prioritize efforts in business
improvement.
